Dishwasher leaking down inside of door from detergent latch

The part arrived sooner than I was ready to install! But it only took about 30 mins.(could take less but I like to do extra) I used a cordless drill with a star bit to remove the 7 screws holding on the inside plastic door cover. I unplugged the four electrical plugs so I could take the cover off completely. Once removing the cover I placed the cover on the kitchen counter to work on. I removed the liquid softner dispenser by turning tthe big threaded white plastic gromet on the front side of cover. I checked the big o ring for wear. Before reinstalling the liquid dispenser I placed a bead on 3-M black gasket silicon around the base and placed the o-ring on top of it just to make sure that it won't leak either. (this is installed last) There was quite a bit of the calcium build all over the parts. I cleaned this up with some CLR and a toothbrush, you don't have too but I'm a little picky and do not want to open it up again.
There are 2 little hex head screws holding the latch and associated hardware in place removing them was no problem. remove the old rubber gromet and put the new one on. Make sure the area where the gromet seats is smooth and clean. Now put it all back together and you should have no leaks

Reservoir was leaking past the 0-ring and out the front of the door

After removing the parts so I could get at the o-ring, I replaced the o-ring and restarted the dishwasher. Water was still getting past. Maybe has something to do with the difficulty of tightening around the short shoulder near the o-ring. To overcome the problem I applied a thin layer of Marine Goop under and over the o-ruing and reassembled the parts. Now no leaks.

Leak around soap dish latch gasket

Removed dishwasher door liner and removed soap dish door latch assembly. Removed latch from assembly and replaced with new latch. Had trouble replacing assembly in correct sequence. Had to go on line and look at sequence picture to replace assembly correctly. Installed new gasket and replaced liner in door. The new gasket and latch solved my leak problem.

Leaking water at bottom left of dishwasher door

Initially thought this issue was the dishwasher door gasket, but after reading post on this site about door latch grommet, removed 7 "hex screws" pulled inside of dishwasher door away and traced water from leak back to soap dispenser latch/grommet area so instead of ordering door gasket ordered door latch and grommet. Replaced grommet only (in addition to 7 "hex screws" had to remove 2 additional screws to get to it) which took some maneuvering. Re-aligned grommet and latch, inserted and tightened all screws that had been removed. Works great - no more water leaking!
